Hempnall put in a lacklustre performance at Loddon, losing 3-0.
They weren't helped by a difficult surface but that's no excuse for the way Hempnall played and the effort shown.
Loddon started the brighter and took the lead after only five minutes when the ball broke loose in the penalty box and Dan Anderson had yards of space to crash the ball home.
After 15 minutes Hempnall started to get a foot hold in the game and seemed to be edging the possession, placing the Loddon defence under some pressure.

But, as been the case in recent games, they couldn't find a clear opening and Loddon keeper Collins was reasonably untested.

First a set-piece was delivered into the box, an attacking player skipped his marker and we were two down. Tom Halliwell was introduced to the game and a shift in formation but the tide was already turning in Loddon's favour whose young team continued to work hard.
A third goal arrived to seal Hempnall's fate and give the home side a thoroughly deserved win. Difficult to find a good performance but Shaun Flint and Sam Wenham put in a tidy shift.
